in the election cycle, that governor romney lost the election. i think the writing was on the wall and i and many others kept saying before the election that we had a problem of immigration. after this election there will be a lot of introspection and analysis about how to get the latino vote. in the end, to me, it was the latino vote -- romney ended up not prevailing precisely because of the latino vote, specifically because the issue of immigration. if governor romney would have had a more constructive view on the issue from the get go, from the primaries, he would have been a very competitive candidate, and in the end he would have ended up prevailing. he did not win. contrary to what he thinks, not because latinos voted for obamacare or entitlements. they just cdid not like him because of the things she said about emigration to remember what he said, people should " self-deport," similar to what the secretary of the state of kansas would say, one of the co- authors of the arizona law, and fought with anti-immigrant groups. when he endorsed mitt romney, mitt romney went out of the way during t
provided, and i think that's why governor romney dropped this issue in the final debate. bob schieffer's first question was about libya, and he wanted nothing to do with it. why? he was getting the same briefings she was. >> speaking of ambassador rice, let me bring you in. maureen dowd is coming down on susan rice. >> she wanted to prove she had the gravitas for the job and help out the white house. she was focused on the pevens, not the content said one administration official. that's a quote in maureen's piece there. what do you make, again, of the focus on susan rice and what some perceive as a lack of focus on what former cia director david petraeus said or didn't say? i think peter king came out and gently worded it for peter king that the story was a bit different. >> well, i mean, i think you find a scapegoat here. she's front and center, but at the same time, i mean, there's all this incendiary talk about this, about ambassador rice, who is eminently qualified by the way. the senate did vote to confirm her four years ago. so we know that she's qualified. the question is, what'
taken up the issue had governor romney done so. and, of course, that's history. no sense mopping yarborough's with it here tonight to but the fact is there is some much there that the national media has not gone after that the republican party has not gone after. this white house has refused to be straightforward. obviously running of the clock is the expression. >> right. lou: and one of the few things that is transparent about this. >> look. even with the press corps this week with the president onthis, there was no attempt to really get to the bottom of this. the closest question was something along the lines of do you think you should have known before the election that, you know, about petraeus? well, that presumes the white house line which is that he did not know. the thin the president chose not to know before the election is mind-boggling. and so they kept it from he public because it was convenient >> and another travesty here, you have these female members of congress that are calling the fact that we are going after the un ambassador because she is a woman of color, a
to look similar to what governor romney talked about in his presidential race and let's cap expenditures or deductions to the increased revenue and focus on spending. >> his plan called for like a $50,000 cap. you could take the deductions wherever you wanted whether it was charity or whether it was a business deduction. >> exactly. >> but you had up to $50,000 and above that you weren't going to get the deduction, is that pretty much the way it worked? >> that's exactly how it works, i think if we stay focused on the revenue side it makes it look as if there's an appearance after win for the white house. we don't necessarily need a win for the white house, we don't need a win for the congress, we need a win for the american people. and i ran for congress because i was concerned about the debt and deficit in this country. and now, there's a lot of talk about this fiscal cliff you mentioned in your comments. we might have been over the cliff and now we're determining what type of landing we have when we land and is it going to be soft, is it going to be hard. it can be softer if we do the
to look similar, republicans are going to look similar to what governor romney talked b let's cap expenditures or deductions to increase revenue and focus on spending. >> mike: his plan called for a 50,000 cap you can take reductions whether it was charity, business deduction, but you had up to $50,000 above that you weren't going to get the deduction is that the way it works? >> exactly. if we stay focused on the revenue side it makes it look as if there's appearance of win for with the white house. we don't need a win for the white house. we don't need a win for the congress. we need a win for the american people. i ran for congress because i was concerned about the debt and deficit in this country. there's talk about this fiscal cliff, we might have already been over the cliff now we are trying to determine what type of landing we are going to have when we land. is it going to be soft or hard? it can be softer if we do the right things that cause economic growth that put americans back to work and gets control over spending. >> mike: the president has been saying i want to find
is the worry in the wake of governor romney doing some polling among hispanics it seems obvious that republicans conservatives may want to change as the approach the immigration issue and while i can't certainly know that this is true i always suspected that governor romney wasn't a hardliner on the immigration issue as he came across. i think there was a question of he had to win his party's primary yet he calculated accordingly and crafted a policy approach and rhetorical approach in keeping with that. nothing that has happened would seem to be necessarily to have changed that fact for the republicans who need to win the party nomination in order to -- i am wondering if any of you would choose to comment on that fact that this is a reality of winning the party's nomination. >> i guess going back -- not only are we going through this introspection people say we need to understand latinos i think we have to understand our own conservative base. and i think we saw that in the primary, and i will give you one example, new gingrich. his approach to immigration was actually pretty g
it didn't elect governor romney, but they had a huge influence on the race and the next elections. >> i've heard so many people say since the election, this proves that big money didn't make that much of a difference because it was sort of a wash. >> i think there are a couple of ways that actually made a big difference this year. the first one which is counterintuitive is it may have actually badly injured romney and the reason for that is after citizens united you had these so-called candidate super pacs and in the republican primaries last spring you had romney who was widely the leader and assumed to have it wrapped up and then you had two other candidates who came up and had millions of dollars spent on their behalf by super pacs and kept the race open. they were the gingrich candidacy and his super pac and the santorum one. what it meant was that instead of wrapping thins up in february, romney waited, had all of these primaries where he was attacked and he ended up the primary season somewhat wounded because these republican super pacs had run really vicious ads against them and
the strength of character and this is over the years in the republican and democratic party governor. romney is now a senator from virginia who had a great depth of character who have self-confidence in a quiet set of ways that could have made an excellent president but they chose -- they were not able to win in the primary. that's one thing is you could ask of the primaries or better than the old smoke-filled room but they are not equal to that. that is another topic, other question, another paper. any other questions? >> yes. well, thank you very much. >> where we invite a guest hosts to interview authors. this week historian james patterson and his latest book the eve of destruction how 1965 transformed america to read in
, they are go ing to put some blame and the republicans are going to put some blame on governor romney and we saw the 47% comments made at the fund-raiser move numbers and both sides jumped on it. the democrats were terrified and the republicans seemed to double-down on it, and he is doubling down on the comments and that is not helpful in the way we want to move forward and after the election the nominee is g is going to smooth over some of his reputation and some of the hits he took by trying to explain away in what happened in the loss and the republicans are going to beat him up for the woes of the party even though he does not need all of the blame and deserve all of the blame, that is what happens after elections. >> around karen, newt gingrich over the weekend called mitt romney's comments nuts. louisiana governor bobby jindal has denounced the comments as well ferociously right out of the gate when he heard them. do you believe the republican party as a whole believes it is time for a dramatic makeover, and i was having a conversation with someone over the weekend that they said that
-election celebrations seem a long time ago for book, one week after defeat egg governor romney, staring down reporters white house fielding questions on the petraeus scandal, benghazi, the fiscal cliff and a long couple weeks with many waiting for answers. jay tapper is an abc correspondent. jay, welcome. >> thank you, great to be here. >> almost perfect timing, this book. discussing before we went on the air that it's -- it concern he is two great generals. mcchrystal and petraeus and they are both gone before the book has hit the streets come you have ever imagined when you were thought embedded with these troops that would happen? >> no the book mainly about the grunts on the ground but does look a lot at how people like president bush, president obama, secretaries of defense and how these celebrity jones, how their decisions end up affecting these guys at this very vulnerable outpost at the bottom of three steep mountains just 14 miles from the pakistan border. one of the things that emerges in the book that mcchrystal and his aides are obsessed with the idea of the celebrity general, as petraeus

to the president. [video clip] >> first, governor romney is an honorable and exceptional man. i'm proud of campaign reform across the country, but i absolutely reject what he said. we as a party must campaign for every single vote. we want people to like us. we have to like them first. you don't insult people and say that their votes or what. we are an aspiration party. let the democratic party be the one that says we will divide people by race, gender, class. we republicans believe are conservative principals are good for every voter. it's not just a marketing campaign. we will go and convince and fight for every single vote to show them we are the party for the middle-class, appeared mobility. we don't start winning majorities by insulting our voters. host: just one of the gop voices this weekend about the future of the gop. we will get to your calls at e- mails and tweets. here's our address -- there's more the papers and on tv from over the weekend. south carolina's central in the gramm was equally harsh in his critique, saying -- here's our first call this jared.g from jarrett bus -- caller: i
who was very involved in the election cycle that governor romney lost the election. i think the writing was on the wall, and i, and many others, said before the election, that we had a problem with immigration, and i know that after this election there will be a lot of interspection and analysis how to get the la teen know vote, but in the end, to me, it was the latino vote or not prevailing, precisely because of the vote, and specifically because of the issue of immigration. if governor romney would have had a more destructive view on the issue from the get-go, from the primaries, he would have been a competitive candidate, and at the end, he would have ended up prevailing in the election. he didn't win contrary to what he thinks, and not because latinos voted for obamacare or entitlements. they just didn't like him because of the things said on immigration. he said people should self-deport, sounds similar to what chris would say, the secretary of state of kansas who was one of the co-authors of the arizona law and very involved with the main anti-immigrant groups, and, in
, and pennsylvania, they were all -- had republican governors. mitt romney is from massachusetts. he did well in the south, which is no surprise as you pointed out. republicans have done well in the south since '64. his problem in the midwest and upper midwest is he was kind of a lousy candidate. he didn't do what he had to do. he didn't connect with working class voters and that's a real problem, but republicans have connected with working class voters and they did two years ago and i think they will continue to do that in the elections to come. >> why did that take -- let me go to something in the rhetoric. you can read it both your own ways. romney kept saying -- we have a little montage. we're going to take back america, take back america. i have to live with the fact that the dallas cloowboys are america's team. i don't know how they got the name but they got it. how did he get to be the american candidate? who named him that? >> that's a frequent thing in politics. >> i never heard obama say take back america. >> you know, this is not that unfamiliar. the idea we're going to take back t
to divorce themselves from the right wing media. we heard more criticism of mitt romney particularly the republican governor's association going after him for the gift comments he made which was sort of another version of the 47% comment. they're saying you can't talk to voters that way. noy, jindal from -- you know,endle from louisiana saying this is what the republican party has to get away from. who practically authored the 47% comments? who cheered romney's gift comments? fox news, rush limbaugh. they love this stuff. i wrote about it during the campaign. you know. republican operatives who run campaigns for a living and know or think they know how to win independent voters look at fox news and say you are killing us. you are driving the party into the ground. you can't -- you can't do blunt. you can't win national elections or statewide elections and follow the fox news formula because it turns so many people off. next four years, that's what they're going to having to grapple with. >> stephanie: you get to the
: picture of bobby jindal, the governor of louisiana. critics say romney digging deeper hole for the party, so this talk continues within the party about what mitt romney has had to say ant why he lost to the president. and it was written that mitt romney's excommunication from the gop continued over the weekend with top republicans growing increasingly angry with the defeated presidential candidate for the damage he's done and continues to do to the party's image. quote: >> host: here's a little bit more from governor jindal. >> well, two things. first, governor romney is an honorable and exceptional man, i'm proud to have campaigned for him across this country, but i absolutely reject what he said. look, we as a republican party have to campaign for every single vote if we want people to like us, we have to like them first. and you don't start to like people by insulting them. we're an aspirational party. let the democratic people be the party that says demography is destiny, that says we're going to divide people by race, gender, class. we believe our conservative principles are good fo
'll divide people by race and gender and class. this is not just a marketing campaign. >> chris: governor walker take look at the exit poll from election night. 43% said romney. how do republicans convince the middle class you are looking out for them? >> we see them in governorship. you have 30 states with republican governors. there is a trust factor there. we need to be a party that talk about it and we need to take the message, a winning message. i bet the republican governors and we take it and we go out to where people are. we have a message that works for young people and works for people that come to country from other countries. everyone in the country living their piece of the american dream. it starts with the governors as great messengers. >> chris: governor gipped jindjindal,what are about the de going on if washington now about the fiscal cliff? president obama says look, let's extend the bush tax cut, lower tax rate for 98% of all taxpayers, including the middle class. why would about middle class voter look at that and say these guys, the g.o.p. are all about protecting th
market freedom again. unfortunately governor romney didn't do it consistently will the way ronald reagan did in 1980. >> so you you blame romney for not doing a better job of -- >> if you don't define yourself, at the speech at the convention, five points which had no overall theme was almost shoved in at the end before he had a good first debate, but didn't follow through on it. >> how much of it is the idea that president obama was able to capitalize with women, was able to capitalize with hispanics, with other people who may have felt alien meanted? >> you define yourself. ronald reagan ran as a pro-life candidate. but, again, he defined a certain agenda. he set what is positive things on out there. if you don't, the other side will do it for you. so they got away with war on women and the idea that gm was a choice between liquidation and reorganization xhrks is wasn reorganization, which is wasn't. romney had a good plan that would have saved tax players $30 billion. >> so you don't think the platform of the party will be fundamentally a different platform? >> you don't have to chang
as governor jindal says on not being the party of stupid. former governor says the party needs a proctology exam. and now in a sign of party unity, they're all tripping over themselves to reject mitt romney's gift comments. >> we're in a big hole. we're not getting out of it by comments like that. when you're in a hole, stop digging. he keeps digging. >> sounds like he'd be happy if mr. romney stayed in that hole. but mr. goingrich one-upped him. >> i just think it's nuts. first of all, it's insulting. this would be like walmart having a bad week and going the customers have really been unruly. >> romney's comments are insulting. that from the man who coined the phrase "food stamp president." here's a little secret. a funny thing happened on the gop road to redemption. they're starting to show they're not really interested in change. take senator marco rubio, a republican front-runner for 2016. in an interview, he was asked how ould the earth is. rubio said, "i'm not a scientist, man. i can tell you what recorded history says. i can tell you what the bible says. but i think that's a dispute
district. >>> louisiana's republican governor bobby jindal slams his own party and some of its candidates. jindal's been critical of mitt romney and the republicans since they lost the election. he says the way to start winning majorities is by not insulting the voter. >> i think we can be respectful of those that disagree with us. we don't need to demonize those that disagree with us. we need to respect the fact that others have come to different conclusions based o on their own sincerely held beliefs. we don't need so say stupid things. we had candidates in indiana and missouri that said stupid things that not only hurt themselves but hurt the republican party across the board. >> since bobby jindal brought it up, let's talk about that with our panel here. >> let's go there. >> as the ranking member on the table here, representative diane heyworth, what do you make of what bobby jindal said there? >> i completely agree with him that it's crucial for republicans to focus on the issues that all americans can share as concerns. to me that means respecting what people do in their personal l
